Scarlett Mic Preamps with Customizable Tone
The four upgraded third-generation Scarlett mic preamps feature switchable 48V phantom power to accommodate your favorite condenser mics, and a selectable-per-channel Air setting, which reproduces the Air effect of Focusrite's original ISA mic preamp to impart enhanced brightness and openness on your vocal recordings.
